First, I’m very excited to announce my second book: coming out in May
Curious Impossibilities: Ten Cinematic Riffs – A sequel to the first book, C.I. features ten fictitious dialogues between various artists and filmmakers, paying homage to various iconic cinematic works of art. Curious Impossibilities: Ten Cinematic Riffs includes conversations with Dora Maar, Louise Brooks, Federico Fellini, Andrei Tarkovsky, Jean Luc Godard, Francois Truffaut; riffing on favorite films such as Hiroshima Mon Amour, Last Year at Marienbad, and others. Composed in the style of the French New Wave films of the 1960s, each text takes a modern, experimental, and literary approach to these conceptually stylized films.
Second, I wanted to announce that my first book, Impossible Conversations was reviewed in American Book Review, volume 38, #1. Reviewer copies have been mailed, and ABR has updated their web page, so the most current issue is viewable.

I’ve been submitting artwork and short stories you won’t find in my other books; I also write a regular column under the pseudonym Adriênne Auvray, called News in a Nutshell that appears monthly.
